Hi,
My Game Boy doesn't work properly any more. It shows only a half of the screen whatever game I use or even without the game it shows only left half of the screen. What to do?
Regards, Andrew.

My gameboy advance sp resets for no reason then sometimes also if I touch the game pack or the screen part it will reset then too.


Important Note:
A few older Game Boy games may not function properly on the Game Boy Advance systems, causing display or sound problems. Also, a few multiplayer games may not work properly.

Note: It may be difficult to play Kirby's Tilt 'n' Tumble due to the motion sensor in the game, and the different orientation of the Game Pak in the Game Boy Advance SP.
Because the Game Pak is situated upside down in the Game Boy Advance SP, players would need to tilt the game in the opposite direction of where they want Kirby to roll.

Note: It is possible that the problem you have may be game play related. For example, if you cannot defeat a particular enemy, or are missing an item you need to complete an area, the problem is likely game play related and there is nothing wrong with your game. Please check our game play help for assistance.

General Game Pak Troubleshooting Steps:
Check the list of specific game issues to see if there are any known problems for the game you are playing.
Make sure you are using only licensed accessories with your system. Unlicensed products are not fully compatible with Nintendo systems, and may not work correctly.
Remove and firmly re-insert the Game Pak into the system. The Game Pak label should be facing away from the machine. Be sure the Game Pak is fully inserted. You will know it is fully inserted when you hear it click in place.
Turn the system on and test the game again.
If it still doesn't work, remove all accessories to see if the Game Pak works correctly without the accessory. If the game does work correctly once the accessory is removed, then the game pak and the accessory may not be compatible. Check the game pak instruction manual.

My gba sp keeps freezing the game


First solution is to clean the contacts of your GBA SP, there might be some dusts on the cartridge slot pins, these dusts reduces performance.

If the first solution doesn't work, make sure that the pins is aligned, if you see some that is bent, then you need to reorient it.

If first and second solution still doesn't work, then you need to replace your cartridge slot.

My sp will not charge, I am not sure if it is the battery or something else


Game Boy Advance SP - Charging Light Won't Display If the orange-colored charge light on your Game Boy Advance SP is no longer coming on when the A/C Adapter is connected to your system, please use the following troubleshooting steps.
    Troubleshooting Steps:
    1. Make Sure the Game Boy Advance SP Isn't Already Fully Charged
      If the battery is already fully charged, the light will not display when the system is plugged into the AC Adapter. Play a game without using the AC Adapter for at least 10-15 minutes, then plug the AC Adapter in, to see if the light comes on. If it does come on, the battery was fully charged. If the light still does not come on, see Step 2.


    2. Make Sure the Outlet You Are Using Works
      Plugging another electrical device into the outlet is a good way to check if the outlet works, or that the outlet you are using is not controlled by a nearby light switch. You may also want to try a different outlet.


    3. Try a Different Licensed AC Adapter
      If the charging light doesn't display, try a different AC Adapter, if possible, to determine if perhaps the problem is with the adapter.

      • If a different AC Adapter works, you will need to get a replacement AC Adapter from our Online Store, or by calling our Consumer Service Department at 1-800-255-3700.
      • If a different AC Adapter doesn't work, or if a replacement AC Adapter is not available and the lights will not display, we recommend having your Game Boy Advance SP repaired. Check out our convenient repair options.


    Note: Please be sure to include both the Game Boy Advance SP and the AC Adapter with any repair

Hi i have a Gameboy color and 1 advanced and they both have problems with the lcd screen it's so dark hard to se what's going on on it :) what's wrong ? can anyone help


you either play them under direct (sun) light or attach some kind of external light like a worm light for a game boy color/advance, but the light isn't evenly distributed. i have a halo light for my gb advance--better than nothing.
